There’s no better place in Dallas to dress loudly, talk loudly and see a fashionable crowd of socialites, political operatives and in-the-know tourists. Town Hearth has taken over the “peak Dallas” title from previous generations of see-and-be-seen tributes to excess, run by chefs like Dean Fearing and Stephan Pyles. They never thought to put a formerly operational submarine in the middle of the dining room, as Town Hearth does. They never thought to put a $75,000 Ducati Sport on the menu as a “side dish.” Behind the submarine and the Ducati, a massive kitchen turns out enough Battle Axe steaks, carpaccios and veal chops to keep up with the all the socialites, politicians and $30,000 millionaires.

Top pick: Ask about “tots du jour,” a platter of potato nuggets slathered in some sort of luxurious topping, such as beef bourguignon or poached crabmeat.

The downside: In addition to seeing City Council members, real housewives and on-the-town country boys, you will probably also catch a glimpse of the bill. It’s not uncommon for a single steak to run more than $120.
